Covered in powdered sugar, fingernails dyed with food coloring, and running to weddings and birthday parties. Follow me here where all my Frosted Fantasies are on display to browse.

Leaping Lizards Cake Girl!

On my oldest's fourth birthday, my animal and lizard lover, asked for a chameleon cake. Actually, at first it was a leopard gecko cake, then he changed his mind.

I piped melted white chocolate that I dyed green for the lizards and trees. then I covered the rest in home made butter cream frosting! YUM!

The cupcakes were a hit too with heart sprinkles to match!

Well, I think it was a success!!!

Sponge Bob Cake

This year my six year old son, picked a Sponge Bob cake for his bowling alley party. 
He absolutely loved it!! I swore before he was born, my kids wouldn't watch this show, but...
My funny fire fighter hubby has a quirky silly sense of humor the boys and I share.
We are always laughing and find humor in just about everything. LOVE it! 
So I couldn't put too much of a fight up when the little boys and my bug boy bonded
over this silly yellow sponge's annoying laugh, or oddly smart humor, once you watch it.
I suppose I survived sneaking the Simpsons' and MTV in at a friend,s house, they will survive this too.

One Quack of a Baby Shower

There it is!! The cake I made for my self.
 Actually, this is the very first cake I have actually made for me. Usually it is a birthday or something for someone else, but not today! Well, it sort of is for the baby kicking me from the inside out, I suppose. Oh well!

This party was held at the fire station my hubby works out of. Not planning on making anything but a baby butt cake, my design emerged at about ten o'clock at night. I was working the white fondant, thinking of what color to make the blanket. Envisioning what pattern I could make. Since I was going the easy way and decorated with rubber ducks in cups, I thought I could throw some duck on it. Trying to keep it simple, since I know I can get lost in the details of a cake, I convinced myself it was an easy shape to cut out and it wouldn't take long at all. 

I should have known...

Then, I started thinking about a little fire fighting rubber ducky my boys used to have, when they were babies. I thought, "Oh that would be cute!" Before I knew it, the time had flown by and it was one o'clock in the morning, and I was brushing off edible blue sparkles off of my hands.

    It was totally worth it! This baby butt and baby feet cake were a smashing hit. The fact that it was a firefighter duck cake made it even more special. Thanks me!!
